Dark Avengers #7 (Marvel – Fraction / Deodato)
“UTOPIA: CHAPTER 3” The DARK AVENGERS/UNCANNY X-MEN crossover continues! San Francisco teeters on the brink of absolute chaos and the X-Men keep getting in the way of Norman’s vision of law and order. So Norman takes his game to the next level: who are the DARK X-MEN? And will Norman’s Avengers play nice with Norman’s X-Men? Here’s a hint: no.
Bah! And this series was doing so good too! Yes, we know Norman Osborne has his hands everywhere. He and the cabal almost have full control. Yes, we know… so, why do a throwaway crossover series that isn’t accomplishing anything in the big scheme of things? Why do a X-centered issue of Dark Avengers? If I wanted to pick up an X-book, I would have picked up one of the umpeenth X-issues already printing this month. Fraction and Deodato are both excellent creators, I just feel they are wasted in this useless bait-and-switch event.
